Turkey Sausage and Chestnut Stuffing

Start a new tradition this year and try a lighter stuffing with turkey sausage. Add even more flavor to your stuffing with fresh chestnuts or chestnut puree. This is the perfect stuffing for your Thanksgiving bird., and it's so good you'll want to repeat it for your Christmas spread.


Makes enough to stuff a 10 pound turkey. Also delicious rolled into one inch balls and baked for 30 minutes just before serving.

Cooking Time30 min


  • 1/2 tin chestnuts, 1/2 pound chestnut puree, or 1/2 pound fresh chestnuts, peeled
  • 3/4 pound turkey sausage meat
  • 1/2 pound cored cooking apples, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 pinch sage
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. You will have to cook your chestnuts first. Pierce the outer skin and boil or steam for 20 minutes. The skins will then peel off reasonably easily.
  2. Add peeled chestnuts to boiling water and cook until tender. (Those of you who are less adventurous might want to look for canned whole chestnuts or chestnut puree, usually imported from France.)
  3. Mash chestnuts almost to a pulp (fresh chestnuts may need grinding or chopping in a processor).
  4. Combine with the rest of the ingredients (except the egg) and mix thoroughly. Mix in the beaten egg to bind everything together. 
  5. Stuff mixture into turkey and cook depending on size of turkey.
